Several reports in some major Spanish newspapers claim that Dutch wesbite www.footballshirtculture.com has revealed Atlético’s kit for the 2011/12 season (pictured right).
There is only one small problem with that claim: it’s completely false.
Though the Netherlands-based website released an accurate prototype of our jersey for the current season months before it was officially unveiled, the picture published in AS and Marca is found under the “Fantasy Kit Design” section of the site, and not under the main page where credible leaks are posted.
The kit-lovers website never states that the model is a real one. It is unclear why the media in Spain have reported that the shirt design is an actual Nike prototype, when it is clearly the creation of a FootballShirtCulture.com site user.
The Dutch site published pictures of what it does claim are the future kits of Manchester United, Arsenal, Juventus and Barcelona, among others, however.
